I Am Reading Please Do Not Disturb

Why is it that almost every time I peel open a good read someone feels that it’s an invitation to start a conversation? Do you experience this? If I am reading in public, I find that people wish to engage in deep topics requiring me to pop my head over my book and answer seemingly subsequent questions. So very distracting!

I think it’s important for non-tea sipping bookworms to know that when we are reading and sipping our tea, we are not bored. We are not lonely. We are simply reading and since we are reading we should not be disturbed.

In this article, you will find a poem, entitled “Do Not Disturb”. The poem expresses the sentiments of a true tea sipping bookworm when she’s reading. It is somewhat comical so I hope you enjoy it! Also, do not forget to SUBSCRIBE to
